So, after finally getting my new laptop all sorted out and after taking DeskJockey's advice on the Acer he linked to, I stumbled upon a similar model but with specs.
Put simply it's a bit of a steal. It's nicely put together, the screen isn't the biggest but it's all lovely in HD. It's very quick, makes my old HP laptop feel like it's from a different century. What has impressed me most is the graphics. 2GB of Nvidia goodness and with the i5 processor and 8GB of ram Rfactor looks fantastic with everything set to high, it's also silky smooth as well.
It has exceeded my expectations for a laptop and being honest I'm astonished how far things have come along in 4 years.
